Thumbs up Turbocharged RL? Absolutely

So yeah, that actually happened...





I'll get more when I get everything cleaned up These pics are from the first day and were missing some things... Got everything sorted and been driving for about 3 weeks with no issues so far... car is pulling like a train

Loving the boooooooost

no dyno numbers until I get it all cleaned up

Gonna be changing the muffler and tip pretty soon, gotta get these 90hz dBs down LOL!


To be fair that's about the highest it's gone.

lol I don't have instagram. don't know anything about it.

It's like combining my old volvo with my RL. The fun I had in my Turbo Volvo was priceless. a car that could put a smile on your face regardless of the situation. The RL was fun in the corners, but it was only "adequate" as Rolls Royce would say, as far as power. This greatly changed what "adequate" means. Definitely pulls a lot better

I refer to it as a "Satellite" turbo LOL! I did it this way because everybody that turbocharges their cars ends up with ruined drivability and irreversible damage done to the car. With this setup there has been absolutely nothing done to the car that can not be reversed and while in those pictures it's still "unrefined/not up to my level of perfection" nothing in the engine bay has been relocated other than the airbox and silencer box, which has been removed Everything exists, and I lost absolutely 0 ground clearance.

Basically everything I set out to do, done.

thinking of spraying everything Crinkle Black to tone down the "Ricky Racer" aspect of it.

So what I think I spy is air to water intercooler? Correct? If so nice pats a big fan of those but not so much for me lol

Also did you use a comp turbo? Those seem to be perfect for remote units.

WOW, I'm speechless! Finally, there is so hope in performance department lol. But how is your transmission going to hold that much power? Anyway, post a DIY thread and does it pass Smog test? I'm in Cali.

nice work here!
do you notice any lag with the "satellite" install vs. going in directly at the motor?
